Music of Oz

The vibrant and eclectic world of Australian music is brought to life right to the heart of London with CAM’s ‘Music of Oz’ concert in this beautiful city venue.

From music which connects the old country to the new from the likes of Percy Grainger, Arthur Benjamin and Edgar Bainton to the fresh home-grown musical language of Peter Sculthorpe, Wendy Hiscocks, Robert Burrell, Carl Vine and one time Master of the Queens Music, Malcolm Williamson, this programme traces the journey of identity which today places Australian music firmly on the world stage.

With star soloists on piano, violin, cello and organ together with two renowned vocalists this concert will present Australian music of the past and present in this celebration of the musical culture of this diverse, vast and geographically remote Pacific continent.
